Skillet Squash with Onions

Please Share Y'all!

 

In this post I’ll be sharing how to make sautéed  Skillet Squash with Onions.

 
Yellow squash or summer squash as it is often called was the first vegetable I grew from seeds as a child. I was just thrilled to plant the seeds and watch the squash plant grow, finally giving us this delicious yellow vegetable.
 
We do enjoy our yellow squash in the south a variety of ways. They can be sautéed as I’ve done in this recipe, fried, grilled, or made into a casserole.
 
A squash casserole is another memory I have from my childhood. I recall spending the night with one of my grandmothers and we created a simple squash casserole.
 
If I remember correctly it has squash, onions, cracker crumbs, salt, pepper, egg, and some milk. Very basic but it was delicious and I remember being so happy to be able to help create it. The love for cooking came early for me.
 
This sauteed squash and onions is a favorite. So easy to do. Delicious and healthy.
